Dirty Birds to donate 20% of sales to Filipino relief efforts

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Local restaurant Dirty Birds Bar and Grill held a fundraiser to help those affected by the recent volcano eruptions in the Philippines.

In an effort to help those affected by the eruption of the Taal volcano, City Councilmember Chris Cate and Dirty Birds Owner Noli Zosa are teaming up to raise money for victims in the Philippines.

More than 200,000 thousand Filipino’s call San Diego home, and many have friends and family who have been affected by the volcanic eruptions that took place just over a week ago.

Dirty Bird’s partnered with Gawad Kalinga USA, a non-profit aimed at ending poverty to help the thousands of people who have lost their homes and have had to evacuate to safe zones.

Starting from 11 a.m. Wednesday until it closes at midnight, all Dirty Birds locations joined City Councilmember Chris Cate and San Diego’s Filipino community to raise money for the Taal volcano relief efforts. The restaurant will donate 20 percent of the day’s sales to Gawad Kalinga.
